Nutty Facts

How long does it take to grow a coconut palm tree?

So, here’s the thing: you can have a fully-grown palm tree in as soon as three years (yay!)--but, it won’t start to yield coconuts until somewhere around it’s sixth birthday (aww!). In fact, it can take as long as 15 years for a palm tree to really get going on coconut growth! And if you’re planning on growing one indoors, make sure you have a skylight, because these guys can grow up to 98 feet tall.

What can I do with a coconut shell?

A LOT. Looking for a new bikini top? Coconut shells. Need a very small hardhat? Coconut shells. Broken maracas? Coconut shells again. See? The possibilities are endless.

Is a coconut a nut?

Nope! Despite the name, coconuts are fibrous, one-seeded fruits called drupes. Other members of team drupe include peaches, nectarines, cherries, and dates.

Packaging

How do you read the best-by date?

Not the way you think—the best-by date, found at the top of every Tetra Pak, is dated 12 months from the production date, and is read as such: day/month/year.

What is Tetra Pak?

Tetra Pak is a BPA-free, eco- and socially-responsible form of packaging made from wood fiber, a sustainable resource. Tetra Pak keeps our coconut water fresh and gives it a shelf life of up to 12 months. For more information, visit www.tetrapak.com.
